Thbe essence of good manners is
kind thoughtfulness of others.
TVbe man who goes to his room in
.L hotel, stamping and talking
through the corridors, slamming
bis door and flinging his boots
lown heavily upon the floor, is
nmerely brutally selfish. He is
not aware that he owes duties to
other peole who will be affected
by his conduct. lie does no*t think
that he rudely awakens some one
to whom s!eep is indispensible,
and whom he has no right to dis
turb. Haydon's picture of the
man in the chop-hcuse, waiting
for the Times, which his neighbor
has held for an hour, and is evi
dently bent upon holding it until
he has read all the advertisements,
is an illustration of this common
selfishness. The talk and conduct
in the cars are generally signs of
vanity or a morbid self-conscious
ness. A well bred man keeps his
toothaches and headaches to him
self, and does not assume that
strangers arc interested in his di
gestion. A well bred woman
keeps her children quiet, and does
not assume that all her fellow-trav
elers must share her fondness for
them. If Mrs. P., with her vivid
sense of K1r. P's. peculiarities and
of her fine house and equipage,
could only once know how sai
p)remnely unimportant any indivi
dual is, how well the world fared
before Mr. P. arrived, and how
unsbocked the universe will be by
his departure, she would be a
modest and weil-mannered wo
man. That knowledge, indeed,
would be a general corrective of
manners. A certain kind of per
sonal conceit often accompanies
undeniable superiority. There are
men like Lord Chatham, who like
to have their going and coming
regarded as events, to move with,
a pompous bustle, and to be con
stantly recognized as great men.
But it they could only know it,
that very taste is constantly ac
counted to themt for weakness,
and their influeiree is just so far

To be dumb for the emainder
of life is better than to speak
